    So I'm in the UK,

    My budget is £250-400 tops.

    I'm looking for 1080p TV that has HDMI connectability (for my Xbox 360Slim) can handle downscaling well (to 720p), handles motion well with no ghosting/over excessive blurriness and is generally regarded as a good brand. Sound is not important as I have external Dolby speakers. Freeview not essential either.

    Should I go LED, and should it be LCD or Plasma (which handles horizontal motion better?)

    I'll be getting this end of the month for our sitting room initially, then it will probably get relegated to my games room for the Hexacore gaming rig that I'm currently building (slowly) and we will get a bigger, more expensive one.

    Thankyou in advance guys :toast:

    I got a Vizio 42" for about $800 USD a few years ago, and it's still strong and clear.
    I'd recommend Vizio brand. Great quality and an even better pricing structure.
    now is the time to buy a display as well.

    for your price, I would just resign myself to LCD. it's still a great tech , and LED and Plasma are just expensive. Also, Plasma is much more useful once you go over 50"... below that LCD is just fine.
